You’ve been told that it’s not what’s on the outside that counts, but the inside. A beautiful lady in all her elegant skirts and jewelry is only as lovely as her personality. Despite her beauty, she could truly be a rotten core, putrid and a blemish on society.
As you consider yourself and your newest gown in the mirror, the only ‘inside’ you’re concerned with is the inside of the dress’ scratchy wool. Thankfully your Dark Blue Astrid Shift is doing a rather impeccable job keeping you comfortable and itch-free. Perhaps it really is all about what is on the inside that counts.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Blue Shift Astrid is a simple and loose fitting slip-on underdress. Made from light and breathable cotton, this dress is designed to be a base layer for your costume. This blue-dyed shift will help keep your more elaborate, detailed outer layers clean while also moderating body temperature. The dress reaches from the shoulders to the ankles and has a wide gusseted skirt with plenty of room, making movement easy.
The roomy, drop shoulder sleeves are long and tied at the wrist with a cotton drawstring in order to keep them out of the way. The Shift Astrid is a simple, but classic design that will suit many LARPers, cosplayers, and reenactors comfortably–whether it be for fantasy or period perfection!
Available in sizes Small/Medium, Large/X-Large, and 2XL/3XL; and in colours Off-White, Dark Blue, and Epic Black.

This cotton crepé product is light fabric with a crinkled texture that provides a nice draping flowing effect. This material wrinkles easily, but can be ironed on a medium heat level.
Machine wash at 40°C / 104°F. Wash separately the first time and with similar colours afterwards. Tumble dry on low heat, but be aware that it might shrink up to 5%. For general stains or discoloration, treat with a commercial fabric cleaner, or blot with tepid water and a soft cloth.
